    You won't find it in your Record of Trial. You will have to contact CID, OSI or NIS depending on what service you were in.

    Your question is hard to follow. Even if this is considered a "failure to exercise reasonable judgment" what are you trying to accomplish? Without knowing more it is hard to answer your hypothetical.

  • Since it was a flat fee, how can I know how much would I be getting back? Military Law

    William’s Answer

    I am sorry to hear of this. Most of us here on AVVO are very responsive. I would recommend that you call the attorney's office and set a time to speak with them and let them know your concerns. But in the long run, it is your case and you need to be comfortable with your attorney. If you decide to make a change you should be compensated for any unused portion of the fee.

    William’s Answer

    You can bring it to his CoC and ask them to prefer charges or give him an Article 15. Candidly, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    William’s Answer

    While it will be difficult, the only solution is to get a copy of your records, and go through them line by line. As Mr. Early notes, a local VSO would be of great help.

  • How does child custody work in the military?

    My ex husband and I have split custody of my son but I am getting re-married to someone in the military. How does custody work if we have to move away because my of my new husbands job?

    William’s Answer

    The military does not get involved in custody issues. If you have split physical custody, your ex may petition for a change in custody due to this change in circumstances.
